This happens to me quite often too. There never seems to be a reason either. It's just me I guess.

happens to me all the time ,can be very frustrating,I tend to get shaky when my numbers go high 200 and above or when they go low under 80,but like it was stated befor if they have been high for a few days I will start to shake when I get to what would be normal for me which is around 120,you just have to be vigiliant and test when you think you are low better safe then sorry.

Like Berry said, if you're running higher for a period of time, then start to run at or even just slightly below your "normal" numbers, it can give you a sense of a false low. This happens to me quite often. If I run high for a few days (like now because I have a sinus infection), once it's under control and my numbers start normalizing, it'll feel like I'm low even when I'm not. I still test often and everytime I have that shaky feeling, even though I know it could be a false low. I'd rather see that it's a false low than to guess at it and wake up in the ER…

My late wife experienced the kind of tremors Berry related when she was had a high and then had a drop in her Blood glucose (BG) levels so his reply may be spot on.

However I would like to add that there are other causes for such shaking, tremors or convulsions which may signal other things which may be happening to you. Some of them are trivial, some may be serious. You may see a brief rundown of these conditions in e medicine here ~

I would get myself to a Dr as soon as possible to get it checked out to rule out anything serious.

Well like manapua72 said. Trembling occurs when your low. But when your shaking when your not, I only have one answer and its out of experience. You've probably been high for a while and when it starts to drop , even if its no where near close of a low level you'll start to shake because your body has gotten use to the high levels. But if this is not the case then I don't know what it is. Hope this was helpful

Hi Samantha … I know that I get shaky when I'm low , as to feeling shaky when you're not low I'm sorry to say I don't know … I guess u have a doctor , perhaps u could as ask this ??? to … I hope it's nothing serious … If u wait longer perhaps someone on DC will have a possible explanation for U … Hope all is well …
